Charles, my good trolling friend,

It is a matter of lifestyle.

I think CB might be a better choice for you.

CB for you, ham goes with eggs.  With CB you don't need to learn syntax (that's not a cover charge for a strip joint) so get your vest and gaiters on and shoot skip and forget the beep de beep.
CB forever Charlie Brown.

Don't strain your brain!

For you, CB.

You can make up your own call sign, or use nothing at all.

Nothing to understand or memorize.  Have altercations with those that dump carriers on you.  Operate illegally with as much power as you desire, or can afford.

HAMS have rules and regulations which we are expected to follow.  CB operates with none of those constraints.

Shoot your skip on 11 meters.  The 10 meter band is not to be used on a shared basis with CB'ers - no matter what your buddy Jeff says.  It is for licensed amateur operators only.

Actually i enjoy a nice ham sandwich every so often but a nice juicy cheesburger with lots of lettuce, tomato, and mayo is the way to go.

...lampoon, or satire, and poorly executed. However, I freely admit to almost wetting myself when I hear a cb'r complain that when he keys up his amp his engine's computer goes down.

Some time ago I watched a CB  enthusiast install an amplifier in his pickup. The first time he hit the PTT every airbag went off including those in the side panels.

Do any of you recall the movie Caddyshack? Bill Murray and Chevy Chase are talking about Chevy's house, and he tells Bill he has a swimming pool. Bill thinks that is great, and then Chevy tells him he also has a pond, and a pond would be good for Bill.

My wife and I use this analogy quite a bit when talking about people. Some are pool people, some are pond people. The same can be said here as well. Some posters are pool people, some pond...

HAM is much better tasting!  After all, it is the other white meat.  CB tends to be tough and stringy unless slow cooked.
